myzine | interactive magazine


you may have seen that I've been using a new platform for fashion bloggers called myzine.. it's a place where bloggers can create their own digital magazines to share with their followers on social media and blogs.


above is a screen shot of one of my pages where I've shared some of my favourite recent outfits! the e-mags are designed with the latest technology in mind (tablet users, iPads etc) with functional scrolling pages and a  nice clean layout. 

you also have the option to get paid for your work from affiliate sales which is an added bonus.. readers simply click the item to buy direct from your pages!


their creative team does all the hard work you simply create the content just as you would for your own blog.. you can see more magazines (including mine!) here.

if you're interested in reading more or creating your own interactive magazine you can join up yourself here.

back soon!

Sunday, April 20

what I wore: ice lolly + floral


ice lolly vest: c/o hero & cape
midi skirt: primark
marabou feather bag: river island
 michael kors watch: c/o shadestation


these photos are from my trip to padstow with james. it's a teeny place so we popped down one afternoon and spent a few hours wandering about aimlessly before we stopped into rick steins for some fish & chips.

the weather was on our side so it was the perfect day to wear my ice lolly vest.. huzzah! I've been a fan of hero & cape since I first clapped eyes on their oversized anchor tee- their playful graphics are all hand printed so I was super excited when this beauty arrived as I'd seen it being made on their instagram.. eeep!

I can't tell you how long I've been looking for a feather bag, I'm pretty sure a chorus of bird song heralded this one popping up on my screen while I browsed the new in section ..I river island I salute you. 

back soon, happy easter guys!

new in | cornwall haul


random crap notebook by happy jackson

I found myself buying lots of random little things when I went to cornwall recently.. I just couldn't help myself! one of my favourites items is (surprise surprise) another notebook for my collection that I spotted in newquay! I've seen this one online quite a few times so I finally caved and added this retro lunchbox into the mix as well. I always find myself obsessing over shells when I'm at the seaside so I picked up a few more of those too.


lips telephone

this is my most treasured charity shop find EVER. I literally squealed when I spotted this in a scope charity shop in penzance for only £4 and the best part? it still works! eeeep!



I've spotted these bowls on urban outfitters before so I recognised them in a little gift shop in padstow. I'm a fiend for buying china so I'm struggling to find a home for these new arrivals. I think I might have a de-clutter of my bedside table and use them to stash skincare in. I found the plate in another charity shop near st ives (I'll use this with some of my old china cups as I love to mix and match patterns.)



I found these recycled purses at the eden project and absolutely loved them! the shell jewellery box is pretty tacky so it was an instant winner for me, I also found this tin that I'll use to store trinkets or business cards in.


postcards

I wasn't going to buy this fabric lampshade but I changed my mind at the last minute and I'm so glad I did! there was quite a few colour variations but I opted for this slightly oriental looking design. I still have lots of frames to hang so I picked up some more postcards to frame from the galleries in st ives.


as nice as looks on my desk..I shall get around to hanging it in my dressing room (eventually)

hope you're all having a lovey bank holiday!

what I wore: cigarette + pink


top: vintage
bag: primark

if you follow me on instagram you might have seen I popped down to cornwall last week... such a beautiful place (it was my first time there so excited was not the word!) our apartment in watergate bay was only a few minutes walk from the beach so we took these photos on our first morning exploring..

it hardly ever occurs to me to buy trousers? I never really need anything smarter than denim on a daily basis but these topshop ones are so easy to wear (if I'm honest it was the gingham swayed me... I heart the stuff.)

I also have to give a shout out for my office flats.. I've not even had to look at a packet of plasters since I started wearing them (those who know my feet will applaud) I have skin like tissue paper so finding shoes this kind is A-mazing.
